Almost everything now is being made easy for us – from the way we communicate,Guest Posting we now have mobile phones and the internet where we send our emails, to the way we do business transactions – we are definitely living in a modernized world. Now, there is also an upsurge of library websites which are becoming information portals. We can already track our books and personal favorites or receive lists of suggested reading materials from the web. This process is being made possible by Electronic Books or E-books.Will E-books change our reading experience? Are we going to carry a mobile device with us instead of tons of textbooks soon? No! They are not intended to replace the print collection in our libraries. However, since the library has limited funds, they are not always able to maintain their collection of print materials. At least, with E-books, the services found inside a library are now being offered online and lending can be 24/7. You can now borrow from anywhere in the world and have instant portable access to the library collection.E-books have features that help us understand and study certain materials. With it, we can test ourselves with interactive quizzes, watch a film segment, highlight important text, and make notes and bookmark pages for review. They have built-in dictionaries that will make it easy for us to check definitions of words. More so, they also enable us to search for specific words or phrases much faster than they could scan text while flipping through the pages of a paper book. Consumer’s AdvantagesE-books are ideal for those who want information in the quickest possible time. It can provide us with video clips, sounds, color images, games, children's activities, and many other interactive multimedia elements. They also have search engine and electronic navigation technology.Author’s AdvantagesNow, authors have an easier means to publish what they want and how they want it to be and distribute their work at relatively low cost. The E-book and the internet technologies will allow anyone who has written a book to publish and market an E-book worldwide.Business AdvantagesCreating and publishing E-books is by far one of the most profitable business ventures anyone can have. Once you have the required knowledge and tools, creating an unlimited number of E-books will cost you absolutely nothing. In fact, it will only bring bountiful profits for you. You can deliver your E-books on demand via automatic download or by email immediately after a customer pays for them. They are also great marketing products. They are great lead generators. They are great back-end and up-sell products. Once you start your own E-book business and your E-books start to spread in the web, you won't be able to stop the profits from rolling in, even if you wanted to. E-books have a magic little way of floating around the internet for years and years after their initial release.Long Term Environmental AdvantagesE-books do not use paper so fewer trees will be slaughtered or pulped. They also do not use commercial grade inks and printing chemicals. They are only being printed when people want to print them. There will be no more warehouses full of millions of overprinted or unwanted books. More so, they are being delivered electronically so less petroleum products and associated transport vehicle resources will be used.What I mentioned is just a small handful of E-book advantages. With these, they will definitely become a part of our future. How big that part is remains to be seen. They will not make real books obsolete because most of us still love to search and browse, flip through, and explore real books. Let us not consider the rise of online access a threat because in fact, it’s a great help – aside from the fact that they don't take up any shelf space, it will also allow librarians to spend less time and money in shelving books and ordering supplies again and more time in helping online and in-person customers to find their needed materials. Eventually, E-books are a new development destined to become important.We constantly conduct research and create reviews on the latest in full color printing
